This Europa Conference League quarter-final is delicately poised after a 0-0 draw surprised onlookers and pundits who were expected a few goals at the King Power last week.

After a busy opening 20 minutes or so that saw Mario Gotze go close for the visitors and Harvey Barnes hit the woodwork for the hosts, the game simmered down somewhat and neither side were able to create much in the way of clear goal scoring chances in a scrappy second half.

Leicester will feel that they have the quality to beat anyone in this competition, but their away form has been patchy, and they’ve tasted defeat on the road in this competition already after losing at Rennes in the previous round.

We reckon that gives PSV a slight edge, so check out our full match preview as we give our expert football betting tips.

PSV to Win and Both Teams to Score

Despite a 0-0 score line in the first leg, both sides had steady success when it came to getting in-behind the opposition defence.

It could’ve been a very different game had Gotze beat Kasper Schmeichel to put PSV ahead in the opening couple of minutes and the visitors also had strong shouts for a penalty after Cody Gakpo was brought down in the second half.

And the Dutchmen come into this in very strong home form, winning five of their last six on their own patch and scoring 20 goals in the process. However, one shining light for Leicester is that PSV have averaged one goal concession per game in that run.

But while we think there’s something in this game for Leicester as far as goals are concerned, the absence of Jamie Vardy could well catch up with them here. And, generally, they’ve struggled on the road this season, with their only two wins in their last 13 coming against Premier League strugglers Burnley and Danish minnows Randers.

We’re expecting an entertaining game in Eindhoven and, honestly, it could go either way, but PSV just have a bit more zip about them at the minute, and a home win with both teams scoring looks a good bet at 3/1 (LeoVegas) across the board with our sports betting partners.

PSV Form, squad news, opinion

PSV are certainly the form side of the two heading into this one and their unbeaten run now stands at 15 in all competitions.

And before their blank in the first leg they were scoring plenty. Roger Schmidt’s side had scored 12 in their three games leading up to their Conference League engagement, so they’ll be confident of finding a goal or two against a visiting side that have kept just one clean sheet in 18 away games.

This Eindhoven side is packed with talented match-winners who are up-and-coming in the game, such as Nono Madueke and vice-captain Gakpo, alongside a sprinkling of experienced players in Gotze and Eran Zahavi, with the latter boasting a big reputation for goal-getting across Europe and further afield.

There are no new injury worries for PSV and they’ll welcome back midfielder Erick Gutierrez to the squad after the Mexican was suspended for the first leg.

Leicester Form, squad news, opinion

It’s been a strange old season for Leicester, who have gone through periods of bad form and also thrown up spells of decent football during a season of inconsistency.

They certainly haven’t been helped by injuries that have cropped up at the wrong times. No more so than talismanic striker Vardy, who could well be out for the rest of the season and thus taking a huge chunk of goals out of this Foxes side.

But the return of young defender Wesley Fofana is a huge boost and the Frenchman’s goal in the Rennes return leg sealed their place in the last eight of this competition. It’ll take another big performance from him, though, if they are to have a chance of keeping PSV at bay here.

In addition to Vardy, Wilfred Ndidi is also out for the rest of the season after the Nigerian injured his knee in mid-March.

History

The first leg was the first ever meeting between the two.

About the Venue

The 35,000-seater Philips Stadion has been hosting PSV for little over a century, after they moved in six years after the ground’s opening in 1910.

PSV average nearly three goals a game on home soil this season but having conceded 18 in 14 games at the stadium this year, they certainly aren’t impregnable at the back.

Conclusion

We’re all set for what should be an entertaining game between two sides who love to attack but perhaps aren’t masters in the art of defending.

But we give PSV the nod thanks to having more of a full-strength squad to choose from, as well as a home goalscoring record that will strike fear into a Leicester side that are particularly leaky defensively on their travels.
